Calligraphy and Cake York
Located in the heart of York with views of the mighty Minster, come and try your hand at Modern Calligraphy and learn how to write beautifully in pen and ink, with lettering artist and illustrator Eleanor Herring of Creating Eleanor.
In this beginners modern calligraphy class your teacher, lettering artist and illustrator Eleanor Herring, will start by introducing you to the tools of the trade (which are yours to take away at the end of the class!) discussing materials, styles and the correct way to place the nib to paper as well as after care of all the materials.
The class will then dive straight into practicing basic calligraphy exercises making shapes and strokes with traditional black inks and flexible nibs, before moving on to lower and uppercase letter forms, with a dash of flourishing a long the way. By the end of the class you will have started to create joined-up words in your own style, with plenty of time to practice and one-to-one help.
The class is tailored to the individual and core needs of the group and what they would like to work on.
